Sergio Ramos is the highest goalscoring defender among active footballers...

Conventionally, defenders are not known to score goals and headline in a team's triumph as their primary job is to protect their goal rather than go up and score them.

Real Madrid star Sergio Ramos is the highest-scoring defender among active players and is the only active defender to feature among the top 10 highest goalscoring defenders of all-time.

Current FC Barcelona coach and club legend Ronaldo Koeman is the highest goalscoring defender of all time with a massive 239 goals to his name in club football.
